ONE COLOR CHALLENGE


GOODMORNING! I opened this challeneg today over at Craft Creations, and knew exactly what I wanted to do. It is also a very cute spring gift card enclosure for the challenge at Paper Pals Arts too!
TIP:when you are using just one color with shades of that color remember to add texture for interest. Here I started with textured paper and continued layering textures with embossing and raised elements in the butterflies. Always add a little surprise on the inside too to elicit a smile! Enjoy your day!~

LOVE this, Donna! The added texture (and, of course, the butterflies) just 'makes' it - beautiful card.

I love this one, pure simple clean and wonderful.
Pink and black go together so well, using the same colour card and just adding texture to let the paper "talk", Brilliant!
I must have a try at this. :0)

Beautiful card!! How did you emboss the edge without getting a 'sharp' crease from the edge of the folder???? Usually I have to hide it with ribbon or something - shhhh don't tell :)
